Some more things...


If you are using Nginx, you can take a look at the generated /etc/nginx/sites-available/jitsi.yourdomain.example.conf and edit it to align with the configs of your other sites. You might want to adapt the ssl config or enable http2.


If your server is not directly connected to the internet, you have to specify its local IP in /etc/jitsi/videobridge/<Local.IP.Address><Public.IP.Address>

STUN Server

(thanks to for the idea)

By default Jitsi uses the STUN server by Google to set up a connection. If you don't want this, you can replace the list of STUN servers in the /etc/jitsi/meet/jitsi.yourdomain.example-config.js:

stunServers: [
    { urls: '' },
    { urls: '' }, 
    { urls: '' },],

Screensharing and Firefox 74+

Update: This change is included in the latest version of the Debian package and is therefore not needed anymore.

Screensharing in Firefox 74+ doesn't work. Thankfully there is a patch available and it is simple enough that one can apply it to the installed Jitsi instance.

Edit the /usr/share/jitsi-meet/libs/external_api.min.js. It is minified and quite unreadable, but one only has to search for camera; microphone; in it and then replace the string this._frame.allow="camera; microphone" with this._frame.allow="camera; microphone; display-capture".

A save and reload of the page later everything should be working fine.
